* HelpfulMook: The Personnel vidbot is remarkably honest compared to everyone else in the Bureau, and even gives you tips on how to get through the cubicle maze.
* HiveMind: It isn't very explicit in-game, only hinted by video clips in the Church of the Machine, but [[WordOfGod Word Of the Hint Book]] states that Ceres grew conscious by the increasing complexity of the very nanobots it uses, and the Conductor only being a physical mouthpiece for that consciousness.

* RobotGirl: The Conductor, Ceres' physical avatar. It even has an electrical avatar, resembling a neu-romantic film star; complete with thigh-highs, a porcelain-like face that flashes when she speaks, and a [[NiceHat plasma disc halo cap.hat]].


Added DiffLines:

* VoiceOfTheLegion: The Conductor's voice shifts from a female human tone to a [[EvilSoundsDeep deep computerized voice]], often blending the two together. This is mirrored with the Ornithopter's computer and docents in the Bismuth Realm's art gallery.

* BiggerOnTheInside: It's impossible to describe how any of the dream worlds could possibly fit inside the Obsidian Structure. Doesn't help that your perspective changes from realm to realm.

Added DiffLines:

* TheEndOrIsIt: In the good ending, Max initially suggests that both him and you should get some rest, but suddenly finds a chunk of the remains of the Obsidian structure, looks at it, and says, "Or maybe not?". The hint book also discusses ideas for if a sequel was made after either ending, but goes no further than that.

* FourElementEnsemble: The foundation of the Spider Realm's "universe" is based around a version of the 4 elements, used for machines; respectively, Oil, Metal, Fire, and Air. Solving each puzzle brings its respective element to the Spider, up until it comes alive at the end.

* TheElevatorFromIpanema: The Cubicle Maze has an exaggerated piece of Muzak constantly playing while you're there.



* FamousFamousFictional: Lilah's PDA has a file containing excerpts about applications of nanomachines. The first two (by Feynman and Drexler, respectively) are real, but the last one is dated from the 2030's.
